The Senior School covers grade 8 to grade 12 of a child's academic life – students join the Senior School at age 13, completing their education at 16 or 18. The academic programme at the Senior School is based on
Key Stages 3 & 4 of the British National Curriculum, culminating in the internationally recognised qualifications of IGCSE and A Levels. Both staff and students at the Senior School have considerable experience in helping those who transfer into the school to feel part of the system.
This regular contact enables close relationships to be established individually, collectively and between home and school. The Senior School also operates a close partnership with parents in order to help maintain its high standards. The High School experience stresses a rigorous academic programme while promoting personal growth for all students.

extracurricular-activitiesExtracurricular Activities

Co-curricular activities can empower students to make their own decisions and help them gain vital experience and skills to lead them on the path to their future.
Co-curricular activities help students gain experience in a variety of areas that will enhance their future. Through participation in sports, students learn cooperation, teamwork and time management. Participating in debates and other competitions students learn responsibility, develop self confidence and communication. Extracurricular activities can also help students discover hidden talents, meet people they might otherwise not encounter, and learn about things outside their own environment.

Our school’s aim is to develop social awareness and a well balanced sense of cooperation and to enhance the formal curricular education of children by providing stimulating activities and widening the learning experiences of the students.

The activity programmes are designed and developed to suit the needs of our students. All students are encouraged to take part in the activities. The activity supervisors and some other teachers are responsible to coordinate the activity programmes throughout the academic year. School offers following activities throughout the academic year

  • Quran Recitation Competition

Academic Prizes Distribution Day

O and A level results are declared by the Universities in the 3rd or 4th week of August. That is our vacation time. So the first thing that we do as and when the school reopens after summer vacation is to organize “Academic Prize Distribution” day for the achievers and position holders for all grades. The ceremony appreciates the talent dished out both in the internal examinations just before the vacation started and in the external examinations.

Sciences (Physics, Chemistry Biology)

Science is an experimental based subject that combines academic study with the acquisition of Practical and investigational skills. It is an extremely important subject as scientific principles underpin the technology upon which our society is based, the biological systems on which all living things depend and the staggeringly complex and elegant universe in which we live. In pre IGCSE students will develop an enquiring mind, that asks questions which are able to be explored and statements that can be tested; the necessary skills needed to plan and carry out investigations- predicting, hypothesizing, classifying, observing, sorting, measuring, fair testing, recording and drawing conclusions an awareness of safety procedures within scientific investigations an understanding of the scientific concepts central to our modern technological society wherein students will be regularly assessed through;

  • End of unit tests
  • Assessed practical work
  • Term assessments
  • Marking of class work and homework.

In addition to these internal assessments, there will be an examination at the end of grade 6 and 7 on all pre IGCSE Subjects.

Information & Communication Technology (ICT)

The Importance of ICT Education

“The world is changing fast: many of the most popular jobs today did not exist 20 years ago. While we can be sure that the amount of change children and young people will face as they grow up will be great, the precise nature of that change is more difficult to predict. We must make sure that young people leave education prepared to cope with uncertainty, risk and change. So, as well as teaching, the traditional knowledge and skills that have always been important in schooling, including literacy and numeracy, it is more important than ever that our education system equips young people with a broader set of personal, learning and thinking skills. Including resilience, confidence, and the abilities to think analytically and creatively; to learn and research; to be active citizens and agents of change; to work with others and in teams; and to manage themselves.”

The Aims of the ICT Department
  • To equip all learners with the experiences and skills of ICT that they will use in a rapidly changing technological world.
  • Develop an environment within the classroom, where all individuals enjoy a sense of personal dignity and status and feel confident of their own equal worth and value.
  • Provide a broad and balanced ICT curriculum, providing experience within and beyond the limits listed in the National Curriculum requirements; and which offers excellence and rigour, and stimulates a sense of curiosity and excitement about their world.
  • Enable pupils to discover their full potential whilst taking responsibility for their own learning
  • Encourage students to work both collaboratively (in pairs or as part of larger groups) and independently as required, and to show respect for the ideas, different capabilities and different backgrounds of all the members of a class or group.
  • Create an active partnership between home and school, seeking to develop and to make use of the talents of members of the school and of the wider community, whilst keeping parents fully informed and involved in their children’s education.
  • Develop in the students an understanding of the social; economic and ethical issues arising from ICT use.
  • Encourage students to review/ evaluate their own work and progress
  • Create in every student, a confidence in their ICT skills and an awareness of how to use it in the most effective way.
  • Give every student the opportunity to develop their ICT capability to an extent where they can use it effectively to enhance their progress at work, college or university.
  • Develop strong cross-curricular links with the other departments within the school, encouraging both students and staff to use ICT approaches where appropriate; provide ICT support for non-ICT staff as required.
  • Inculcate in the children a growing awareness of how ICT is used in the world around them and of the benefits that it provides.
Pakistan studies

In History and geography, students acquire and apply knowledge, skills and understanding in five main areas:

  • Chronological understanding
  • Knowledge and understanding of events, people and changes in the past
  • Historical interpretation
  • Historical enquiry
  • Organisation and communication
  • Maps
  • Landscapes
  • Minerals

In pre IGCSE the aim is to give students a firm foundation upon which to build in subsequent years. Throughout grade 6 and 7 the curriculum is designed to promote:

  • Source analysis techniques
  • Independent learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Hypothesis testing
  • Good practice when undertaking research
  • Use of ICT

Particularly in grades 6 and 7 the themes that students study allow a greater understanding of continuity and change across time. This is a vital element in both the IGCSE and A levels curriculums. In addition to this, they are required to give deeper thought to the dual ideas of cause and consequence.

assesment

Assessment

Assessment in all pre IGCSE will be in the form of both Formative and Summative assessment. Students will be assessed both in their written work, by examinations, by presentations and also through class discussion.

parent-teacher-meetingCommunication with Parents

Home and school—everyone shares the goal of helping children learn and feel successful. Research has proven that when parents and teachers work together, everyone benefits: Students tend to earn higher grades, perform better on tests, attend school more regularly, have better behaviour, and show more positive attitudes toward themselves and toward school. School programmes that include strong parent involvement are more effective. 
PISES establishes an effective home-school partnership for both teachers and parents to create a trusting, equitable relationship. Parents can talk frequently with school personnel about their child’s grades or misbehaviour. PISES provides an opportunity to develop a cooperative partnership with teachers. Parents are always welcome to make an appointment to see a Teacher, Coordinator and the Principal. Two formal parent teacher meetings are held in a year to facilitate communication.

The Curriculum for KG

Our teaching programme is based on the best of the British and American Curriculum with due amendments made in recognition of our international setting. All lessons, with the exception of Urdu, are taught in English. Children are encouraged to speak English at all opportunities throughout the school day.
While the Curriculum assigns specific skills to subject areas, thematic links are made between disciplines to ensure learning takes place in context. We continually work to provide a practical and ‘hands-on’ learning adventure for children.
In Reception and KG we use “Abacus Evolve” which is a scheme used in many schools. It encourages problem solving and practical activities. There is an interactive element which supports the class activities.
We teach the children to write their numerals as follows:


Reading

The “Collins Reading” Scheme is the school’s main reading scheme, although it is not used exclusively and reading is supported by a number of other schemes and the Library provision.
Reading books will be sent home on a regular basis for the parents and children to share together. Other work to support literacy and numeracy may be provided where this can be helpful to consolidate the child’s understanding.

Handwriting Script

All Primary classes follow the Nelson Handwriting Scheme. Examples of this can be obtained from the class teachers.If your children are writing or drawing at home, please encourage them to use the correct grip. If they are writing their name, please only use a capital letter at the beginning.

 

physical-education

Physical Education (P.E.)

Participation in sporting activities is an essential element of any healthy and balanced lifestyle. During Physical Education we aim at development of the children’s ability to face the challenges of trying to do better, to set goals and find the discipline to pursue them, to appreciate and learn the importance of fair play and healthy competition, to understand the co-operation involved in team sports and to appreciate the fun of taking part.

supporting-child

Supporting Your Child At Home

We place great importance on reading and ask for your help in spending a little time every day sharing and talking about your child’s book with them.

In KG, in addition to reading, there are weekly spelling tests and simple mathematical activities which we hope parents will support by working with their child for a few minutes each evening. In delivering the Curriculum we aim to equip students with the necessary skills to become:

  • Independent Enquirers

  • Creative Thinkers

  • Reflective Learners

  • Team Players

  • Effective Communicators

    assesment

    Assessment

    In Nursery, Reception and KG we use an informal means of assessment developed by the school and used throughout the school year. This involves observing the children as they go about their activities and assessing their progress in all subject areas. The results are used as a tool to track both individual and class progress over time. We would like to stress that it is a fun activity which the children thoroughly enjoy doing.

food

Food at School

It is part of our school ethos to promote healthy eating. We also encourage good manners when eating together and allow the children plenty of time to finish their food.

  • Snacks and Packed Lunches

Please avoid sending sweets, crisps and fizzy drinks in your child’s snack or packed lunch. For safety reasons glass bottles are not allowed in school. Children find the screw tops on bottles and containers particularly difficult to seal properly and this often causes leaks. Please provide healthy and balanced meals to your child for lunch. Following are few examples

    • Fruit, cut up, or vegetable sticks are always tasty

    • Everyone enjoys sandwiches

A snack box with a snap lock lid is important. Remember a label. Small drinks cartons with a straw help prevent spills and leaks. Drinks containers should have a re-sealable lid. If you pack yoghurt, remember a spoon.

 

 

Social Theme of the Week

Each week a chosen social theme is identified for which children can earn points for observing.

 

 

parent-teacher-meeting

Communication with Parents

We firmly believe that parents and teachers need to work together to provide the best education for your child. We recognise that the process of learning starts long before school begins and the influence of home is an integral factor in the all-round development of your child. Young children need the interest, support and encouragement of both their parents and their teachers in order to develop the confidence to learn.

We have an open door policy at school and if you have a concern or worry about your child we shall make every effort to see you at a mutually convenient time.We also communicate on a weekly basis via the homework diaries.

orientation-evening

Orientation Evening

Infants’ Wing holds orientation evening at the beginning of the school year to provide an opportunity for parents to gain information about the curriculum. Team of staff members brief the mothers about what exactly is to be taught and when. They also discuss various teaching techniques.

personal-hygiene

Personal Hygiene

It is extremely important that your child is fully toilet-trained before starting in Nursery. Please also make sure that they can ask an adult when they need to use the toilet. Of course, “accidents” happen from time to time, so please pack a spare set of clothes in your child’s bag.

rewards

Commendations & Rewards

We encourage team work. The children can gain stars and points on a weekly basis for good behaviour and hard work. The stars and points are also counted on an individual basis and for every ten points your child is awarded a commendation. When your child has accumulated 10, 25, 50, 75 or 100 commendations he/she will receive a certificate and a reward, which is presented in our weekly assembly.

Every week we present a “special Medal” to the Lower School. Theses medal are for those children who have shown the most care, consideration, hard work and good behaviour etc.

Throughout the year the children take part in a number of events, e.g. Arts Festival, Sports Day and other diverse activities in which their involvement gains points for them and for their class.

We operate a policy of positive behaviour reinforcement and frequently award stickers and stamps. At the beginning of every year each class develops a set of classroom rules. These are displayed in the classrooms and are in keeping with the whole school policy on promoting good behaviour.

Labels

Everything must be clearly labelled with your child’s name. It is frustrating for both parents and teachers when items go missing or get mixed up. We collect items of lost property in a container.

Please note that this will be emptied at the end of each month.



 

junior-school

We aim to provide each child with an enjoyable, rich and informative education which helps to develop the 'whole child'; in the hope that they will be prepared for much of what their future holds for them. In fact our motto is 'Preparing Children for the better Future.

The Foundation Stage

 

This stage covers the Foundation from grade 1 to grade 4 and offers a carefully integrated programme of learning. The progress of each child is closely monitored across the six key areas which make up this stage: Personal, social and emotional development; Communication, language and literacy; Knowledge and understanding of the world; Physical development & Creative development; Mathematical development.
During these formative years, particular emphasis is put on personal, social and emotional development. As the children move through grade 1and grade 5 they build on their understanding of the world around them. All the key curriculum areas are covered during the year, and assemblies provide an opportunity for the children to build a sense of community.

 

Key Stage 1

 

This stage covers grades 1 & 2 and consists of the three core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science and the foundation subjects of social studies, Art and Physical Education.
Children in Key Stage 1 are taught through a 'topic approach'. During these first two years of Junior School life, students are encouraged to learn both practically and academically and all work is monitored to ensure that students are making the desired progress. We encourage the children to take pride in their achievements and adopt an independent and self-reliant approach to school and particular attention is given to the social and emotional development of all children.

 

Key Stage 2

 

This stage covers grades 3 - 4 and is made up of the same core and foundation subjects found in Key Stage 1.
Much of the work in these year groups is ‘cross curricular’, which means that one theme is covered by several subjects. Topics are structured to allow children the freedom to explore new subjects in a stimulating way, encouraging a natural enthusiasm for more independent learning. In grade 3 the reading and spelling homework, experienced the previous year, is supplemented with written work, which increases in grade 4.

Supporting Your Child At Home

In grade 1 to grade 4 we place great importance on reading and ask for your help spending a little time every day sharing and talking about your child’s book with them. As children progress through the school, daily reading remains imperative; however the amount of additional formal homework also increases. These tasks are a valuable way of both consolidating and extending work completed at school and offer opportunities for parents to become actively involved with their child’s learning. Taking a positive interest in your child’s work will help them to feel value in what they are learning.

Helping your child to organise their time so that homework is not left to the last minute, making sure there are suitable quiet working conditions, and checking work are all useful ways of supporting your child. Teachers will spend time explaining homework tasks to children. The children will record what they need to do and when it should be completed by in their homework diaries. The nature and amount of work children receive varies according to age.

Other ways to support your child’s learning at home

While set homework establishes necessary working routines, learning at home can also be promoted by a more 'hands-on' approach. Learning is most effective when people are interested and motivated. Here are some ideas that will produce tangible results that could be shown afterwards in class:

When you go on holiday, collect postcards, photos, tickets, maps etc. to make a scrapbook or make a page for a travel brochure to advertise your holiday destination showing what interesting things there are to do there.

  • Write a newspaper report about something you did at the weekend.
  • Make a leaflet to promote the importance of, for example, eating healthy food, taking exercise or brushing your teeth.
  • Cook something. Take photographs and write this up as recipe.
  • Write some instructions for how to play a favourite game or how to make something.
  • Make a quiz or board game about something you learnt about in Science or Topic.
  • Visit a museum or gallery. Make a leaflet advertising it.
  • Interview someone about a hobby or their job. Record this to play to the class at school.
  • Write a short essay about some place you visited.
  • Visit an Art and Craft shop and choose something to make.
  • Look at food packages in the kitchen and find out where they come from. Find these countries on a map.
  • Make a 'Museum of Me' in a shoe box collecting personal objects and pictures to show your life.
  • Go on a nature walk. Make a collection of things you find, take photographs, and make rubbings of tree trunks and stones.

 

 

Commendations and Rewards

Children can earn points for good work and behaviour and these are recorded on charts displayed in classrooms. When children gain 10 points they receive a commendation. Certificates and prizes are awarded when children reach the milestones of 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 commendations.

 

Star of the Week

A ‘Star of the Week’ will be chosen by each Class Teacher for specific academic or social achievements warranting special mention.

 

 

 

Social Theme of the Week

Each week a chosen social theme is identified for which children can earn points for observing.

 

 

Things to Bring to School

  • School book bag - for keeping reading, library and homework exercise books in.
  • Pencil Case – grade 1- 3 are encouraged to bring a pencil case to school – from grades 4 onwards children are expected to have one. It needs to contain a handwriting pen, pencil, rubber, pencil sharpener, small ruler, green pen and coloured pencils.
  • Water bottles – Children may bring a water bottle into the classroom with them. Other drinks may not be brought into the classroom.
  • Other drinks – Children may bring other fruit juices into school to drink during breaks. Because of links to hyperactivity and behaviour, drinks with artificial colours, flavourings and sweeteners should not be brought to school.
  • Snack - Children may bring a small snack to school to eat during breaks. We appreciate healthy snacks such as fruit or for example a whole meal cheese sandwich. We ask children not to bring sweets and crisps to school.

 

 

Special Needs

Discipline Committee works closely with our administration, to respond to unique and ongoing needs for younger children.

Extra clothes- Occasionally, due to a spill or accident, there is an emergency need for clean clothing. Sweat pants and shorts with elastic waistbands are handy for fitting students of all different sizes. Parents may be asked to provide some extra items for their children in case of emergency.

Lost & Found- Throughout the year items are left on the field during breaks. These items are collected in the office, for lost and found, which is dealt by school secretary and discipline committee.. If your child misplaces a personal item, or check in the lost and found before giving up! It is always a good idea to have your child’s name in his/her belongings.
